God: placed that deposit deep within us…
1 Corinthians 2:11-12 (KJV) “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God”.
Every now and again we have to take the time to search deep within ourselves, do a self inspection of our hearts to make sure that our motives, thoughts, hearts, minds and souls are on the right track. We can’t take for granted that we have gotten it all together and are operating in the manner in which we ought to or else we would be deluding ourselves.
The issue of sin comes in all form and it’s a very tricky situation at the best of times: for instance we say we don’t judge and then get to reading an article in the news and then we put our thoughts to evaluating the situation and without knowing all the facets of the situation we cast a judgment against an unknown entity and that’s just a minor but popular scenario that most of us can attest to doing.
But we have to do a soul search and when we do that we can determine what is right and just in our eyes. The deeper aspect of that is when the spirit of God dwells within us; there is a conviction which He effects that allows us to check our behaviors. When we get to being mature Christians we become sensitive to the promptings and the urges to move, to go, change, stay etc. He does an excellent job working through and in all of us.
Our reading for today brings about another great revelation of the things He wroughts within us: sharing of information from the mind, the inner being, the very person of God Himself. The Spirit of God, searches out the things pertaining to God and what needs to be disseminated to us is downloaded to our spirits and then we are privy to supernatural information.
Not to indicate we are in any way spooky, but those of us who operate in such a realm is said to be taught of the spirit. God shares information with whomever He chooses and today if you are struggling to understand what God requires of you; if there is a feeling of separation between you and your Father; if there are doubts and concerns which you feel you can’t share with any man, then your conversation needs to be with your Savior, for it is such a time as this He came to the world.
Let your prayer be “Father in the name of your dear son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, let me drawn nearer my God to thee; I need my savior today, this moment, right now Father: if you have ever been real in anyone’s situation, let me see that manifestation in my situation. God I am kneeling, I am bowed down before thee. I guess what I am trying to say is, I need thee Father, I need thee: let my prayers activate divine assistance, in Jesus name. Amen.
